About us

Established in 2001, Liverpool Reviews and Implementation Group (LRiG) specialise in systematic review methodologies.

We conduct clinical and cost effectiveness reviews of new and existing health technologies, and have expertise in the health economics of pharmaceuticals and disease modelling.

We are a dedicated team of experienced health economists, economic modellers, systematic reviewers, statisticians and a programme administrator. With the ethos that good research is conducted by teams rather than individuals, we have fostered many partnerships with clinicians and other research groups and we are proactive in building collaborations.

Our research is mainly commissioned by the NIHR Health Technology Assessment programme on behalf of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE); but we also work on a number of diverse projects, often in collaboration with researchers from many disciplines.  We are also a key partner in evidence synthesis with the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care North West Coast (CLAHRC).

We take pride in our high quality research outputs, and the impact that our research has on shaping national and international guidance for the use of health technologies.
